A recent bout of bovine pneumonia caused dozens of cows at JPC Farms to stop producing milk. A local health advocacy group that regularly monitors the health of dairy cows publicized the problem, which caused many customers to stop buying milk from the farm. The drop in sales forced the price of JPC milk to fall. As a result, JPC Farms has had to increase the output of milk from their healthy cows with the use of hormone injections in order to prevent revenue from falling.

Which of the following, if true, taken together with the information above, best supports the conclusion that the price of JPC Farm's milk will continue to fall?

A. The health advocacy group that monitors dairy cows performs a function that improves public health.
B. Infectious diseases like pneumonia can rarely be detected in time to take measures to prevent their spread.
C. JPC Farms is a medium-sized dairy, so it cannot significantly increase its output of milk without using hormone injections.
D. The use of bovine hormone injections is known to cause severe health problems in a substantial percentage of cows.
E. No prevention measures can prevent all cases of bovine pneumonia.
